SVG and Traditional Graphics

We have described the various image formats, noting that they fall into two camps: vector formats that describe the shapes by means of equations, and bitmap or raster images in which the image is composed of dots.

SVGs, as the name implies, is a vector format that is designed to be scalable. There are other vector formats that can be scaled, but SVG has additional advantages that provide great promise. The SVG specification was approved by the W3C Consortium in 2001 and is now in use worldwide.4 4
